Resource Youth Council Highlights the Future of Youth in Workforce
The Resource Youth Council recently commissioned Communitas Consulting to produce a study of how well the Capital Region is doing in creating the conditions required for all young people to succeed in the workforce and what the Region can do to increase the odds that youth will set and reach their education and career goals. The resulting report, Aligning Potential: Matching the Need and Resources of Youth with the Capital Region’s Future has just been released.
